Tyler Dickerson releases debut single
Sunday, February 14, 2010
– After more than seven years playing country fairs and festivals before picking up a regular weekly gig at Tootsie's on Broadway in Nashville, Tyler Dickerson's debut single, Tell Your Sister I'm Single,
was just released by Lyric Street Records.
The song goes for adds on Feb. 16. Tell Your Sister I'm Single reveals the story the story of a jilted man who, after giving his partner everything she wanted, is ready to celebrate singledom and find someone who will appreciate everything he has to offer.
Born in Hattiesburg, Miss., the 16-year-old singer discovered his love of music when he made his stage debut at the age of eight. He was discovered while singing and playing five days a week on the Tootsie's stage.
"The first time I sang, the man who books the place was outside and didn't get to hear me," he said oin his Myspace page. "The next Saturday I made sure he did. After I finished my two songs he offered me a spot at Tootsies every Tuesday and Thursday. I was hoping for the weekend but at least I had my foot in the door. Pretty soon I got my wish - I was singing Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays on the front stage."
Dickerson, who co-wrote five songs on his upcoming debut CD, has been hard at work in the studio with producer John Rich recording his debut album. The two hooked up after Dickerson entered a John Rich talent search.
No word on when the CD would be out.

When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile warms hearts with empathetic thoughts
Brandi Carlile, dressed festively with a Santa hat, began her mid-week concert set with Joni Mitchell's "River" and closed with the carol "O Holy Night." In between, she sang about an equal measure of old and new songs. And on this first night of a short acoustic tour, Carlile was both in fine spirits and voice.... »»»
Concert Review: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures
After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set.
As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»
